Quentin Tarantino reveals his personal favourite

Quentin Tarantino reveals his personal favourite
For nearly 30 years, Quentin Tarantino has been one of the world's most popular and controversial movie directors. The American has so far directed nine films, many of which are considered modern classics.

Besides rapid dialogue and good stories, the director is widely known for writing memorable characters. Vincent Vega in "Pulp Fiction," Aldo Raine in "Inglourious Basterds" or The Bride in "Kill Bill" are just three examples. During a Q & A session at a film festival in Jerusalem, Tarantino revealed to the audience which character was his personal favorite: The SS officer Hans Landa from the movie "Inglourious Basterds."

- Landa is the best character I’ve ever written and maybe the best I ever will write,” he said. “I didn’t realise [when I was first writing him] that he was a linguistic genius. He’s probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish.

Tarantino revealed that after an unfruitful auditioning process for the role, he almost shelved the entire film: “I was getting worried. Unless I found the perfect Landa, I was going to pull the movie. I gave myself one more week and then I was going to pull the plug. Then Christoph Waltz came in and it was obvious that he was the guy; he could do everything. He was amazing, he gave us our movie back.”
